CNBC bureau has a new chief
CNBC has named former Fox News producer Paul McNamara as its California bureau chief, overseeing reporters in Los Angeles and San Jose, according to a memo from CNBC business news managing editor Nick Dougan. McNamara was a line producer of “The Fox Report with Shephard Smith” and then joined the TV Guide Network about a year ago. In his new role, McNamara will be based in L.A. “but will have soon memorized the flight schedules to San Jose,” Dougan wrote. Jim Goldman, who was CNBC’s Silicon Valley bureau chief for several years, left the network last July to join the Burson-Marsteller PR firm.
